A long-expected party

Share us!

I struggle a lot with the big picture. I’m often so mired in day-to-day stuff that it takes significant effort to step back and look at where I’ve come from, where I am and where I’m going.

When it comes to the show, it’s no different. Scott and I spend a lot of time zoomed in on the specifics of what we’re doing — booking guests, recording and editing audio, coming up with content for the website — that we often forget to pause, step back, and take a look at where we’ve arrived. They have cliches that describe this — about forests and trees, and smelly roses. But we’re much too high-brow to invoke such phrases.

Still, I’d like to pause, if you’ll indulge me, and take a look and where we’ve arrived. If I get too self-flagellating, please feel free to take me down a peg in the comments.

You see, the Unknown Studio — the flagship of what we do, the podcast — is coming up on its first birthday. Not to put too fine a point on it, but this is an exceedingly big deal to us. And hopefully to our listeners as well. Here’s a bit of a year in review for you:

So what does the future hold for the Unknown Studio? Well, we celebrate our birthday at the end of the month and we have exciting plans for Episode 27 at the end of June — which will feature a return appearance from Brittney Le Blanc, who’s rather sore at us that she’s the only Unknown Studio guest who’s never done a Fast Fifteen (that still doesn’t sound right).

You’re going to want to tune into that episode, as we’ll have some very awesome content and some exciting news to share with you.

Also, later on this summer, we’ll be having a proper birthday party — with cake and all! — alongside our lovely colleagues at TheEdmontonian.com, who are coming up on their first birthday as well.

To friends, listeners and naysayers alike, thank you so much for your support/constructive criticism over the last year. It’s shocking we’ve been able to do so much… and that we plan to do so much more. 😉

Oh! If you want to get more “meta updates” from the Unknown Studio, make sure to subscribe to our newsletter! I personally promise that unless something incredibly rad is going down, we’ll only send your one newsletter per month. Deal? Deal.

    As a regular podcast listener, before and since being on the show, I’m glad Edmonton (and iTunes) has you.

    You guys put together a great show, and the website is a fantastic supplement and additional place to get into your heads.

    Congratulations on one year, 26 episodes, and a bright future kicking hyper-local ass.

      I really appreciate the support, Jeff, it means a lot.

      And the feeling is very mutual. Your efforts at the Edmontonian have really helped to demonstrate how interesting, diverse and hilarious Edmonton and its citizens are. I’m glad you exist… and that we co-exist. <3

        When do we make a new media baby?
